    Shotcrete (input needed)

    Thanks for the replies. The top of the raised bond beam is 25' long. The sheer descent pipe is right at 12'3". The center of the cut out is 14'6". So the pipe is just about centered. I think that once the pool is complete it will look like a body of water and the left of center cut out will...

Pebble Tec stands behind their product and if we were to build another pool or resurface we would use them with out a second thought. Here is a...

    Motor identification

    Thanks for the recommendations and advice. I believe my pump runs on 115V. Can anyone recommend a direct replacement for my current pump? I have found several options online but none of them seem to cross reference. Any help is appreciated.

    Motor identification

    I don't have the timer. That 2 speed motor is quite a but more pricey than the one speed.

    They are making a profit on you going with them instead of the other guys always remember that! They should be happy to hear from you no matter the question. now is the time to make changes and get the pool you want. Once its done its done! Making changes after the fact is very costly!
